Pennyblack Music Presents: Madam + Idiot Son + Dream Maps

TICKETS AVAILABLE HERE Doors - 8pm

Tickets - £6adv / £7 door

MADAM

After playing three times before at our nights, we are happy to welcome Madam back on the bill. Fronted by the charismatic chanteuse Sukie Smith, Madam's noirish, nocturnal music brings to mind PJ Harvey, Portishead, and Cat Power at their smokey, intoxicating, late night best. The band have released two critically acclaimed previous albums, 'In Case of Emergency' and 'Gone Before Morning'; have collaborated with artists such as Swervedriver's Adam Franklin, and completed a soundtrack for the debut feature film of Neophyte Films, 'Hush Your Mouth' - an "urban ghost story." Madam’s long-awaited third album, ‘Back to the Sea’, will be released digitally on the 5th August and on limited edition vinyl on the 23rd September.

IDIOT SON

Idiot Son remain something of a hidden secret. Based around frontman Andy Thompson, the band formed in the late 90s, but only released their first single, 'Sunflowers', in 2000. It would take another four years before they would release their debut album, 'Lummox', on their own Poppycock label, featuring shimmering, solitary acoustic guitar and cello alongside conventional drums and bass, all winding around Thompson's wry observations of the capital city and its stories.

Now they are returning after a recording absence of ten years with their second album, the similarly sublime ‘Stibbington’. Tracks such as ‘Hold the Engines’,. ‘The Best That Men Can Do’ and ‘HalfSwimming’ build on Thompson’s melancholic themes of love, heartache and urban living. This gig at the Sebright Arms will be Idiot Son’s first London appearance since a previous Pennyblackmusic gig in January 2015.

DREAM MAPS

Dream Maps is the project of London-based experimental musician and multi-instrumentalist Dominic Simpson. His fascination with UVB-76, a mysterious radio station believed to owned by the Russian military has provided much of the inspiration for Dream Maps’ largely instrumental debut album, ‘In Stormy Nights’, which , released in January, has been described as a work of “desolate but ethereal and haunting beauty.” Dream Maps ‘ debut performance will be at this gig.

released in May 2016, has garnered coverage from publications such as Billboard, The Line Of Best Fit and Hillydilly, and won him comparisons to artists such as Tears For Fears, Kate Bush and The Police.

Seth Faergolzia's Multibird

Seth is touring Europe with fellow Rochester, New York State musicians Multibird to herald the release of his new "High Diver" album (BLANG 65). As a performer Faergolzia is as heart-warming and soulful as he is eccentric and pioneering. And Multibird are astonishing.

“Phenomenal live” – NME “He makes music like nobody else. Uniquely original, his rightful place is beside Captain Beefheart and Zappa.” – Adam Green (songwriter/film maker/ex-Moldy Peaches) "One of the all-time greatest songwriters and performers...an endless powerhouse of imaginative energy" - Jeffrey Lewis

amini + Still Changing

Doors - 7.30pm

Tickets - £4 on the door

amini is Nio Amini and Mattis Moviken.

amini’s debut EP “between dreams and worldly things” dived into the theme of unrequited love. Their second EP “a whisper in your ear” continues on that note as well as adding the theme of a certain obsession people get when it comes to knowing more about someone’s life after they passed away.

With heart-aching lyrics, husky vocals and progressive and massive drums, they manage to create a captivating soundscape that will drag you into a delicate, dark corner.



Still Changing

Rock guitars, smooth synthesizers, groovy beats and a distinctive baritone voice all play their part in Still Changing's musical playground. The band has dedicated themselves to create music that challenges both the mind and body. Under the surface lies an everyday melancholy that is being treated with a prescription of musical fun and games.

Still Changing has become known for their highly appreciated live shows, showing the audience that they can't only play, but also convey the music they make. This is a band that wants nothing more, than to see people smiling and dancing, leaving the concert happier then when they came. And maybe, going out the door with a postivie, yet reflective, perspective on their everyday life.



Both bands are teaming up for a UK fall tour

Leicester-born singer-songwriter James Cherry has charted a steady rise with his patented brand of "aggressive soul". With only two releases under his belt, Cherry has already played a coveted gig at this year's BBC Radio 1’s ‘One Big Weekend’ and tipped by Annie Mac as a ‘New Names’.

DHP Concerts Presents: Chris Staples

TICKETS AVAILABLE HERE Doors - 8pm

Tickets - £7adv

For some time, Chris Staples was longing for things to return to the way they had been. The way they were before he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and his pancreas failed. Before his bike accident and the resulting hip surgery. Before the dissolution of a long-term relationship. He had been left to pick up the pieces, but for a long time couldn’t bring himself to. “I felt for a several years like I was mourning. Mourning a happier time in my life, or a time when I was more youthful. Everything was different for me after that period in my life.”



But the myths we build about our past are often gilded: we believe things were innocent, that they were whole. Staples, after feeling the seductive pull of that illusion for years, had enough of it. He was going to tear it down. As he began to pick up the pieces of his life, and coincidentally began to write music for a new album to follow his acclaimed 2014 Barsuk debut American Soft, his songs pivoted forward, becoming the new record, to be released in August 2016: Golden Age.

TICKETS AVAILABLE HERE Doors - 8pm

Tickets - £8adv

Gaz Roberts can certainly relate to the other The Man And The Echo, but it was music – not life itself – that he was on the brink of ending. His band, Cheap Cuts, had built up a decent following in their hometown of Warrington, with their tragicomic songs about local motorway services and radio phone-ins and the singer’s rapier between songs wit. However, in the end, he didn’t feel there was anywhere left for them to go. A gig at London’s 100 Club was set to be his last until, like in the poem, fate intervened, the manager of the headline band came up and said “If you change the name and write a whole new set of songs. I think I’d like to manage you.”

Mower (UK) Single Launch

TICKETS AVAILABLE HERE Doors - 7.30pm

Tickets - £6adv

Graham Coxon favourites MOWER are BACK! Signed to the Blur guitarist’s Transcopic label in 2001, Mower released their Coxon-produced debut album to critical acclaim, lead single ‘Na' making it as NME’s Single of the Week. Reinvigorated with a new lineup, the band recorded their second album with Mike Pelanconi and Stephen Street. Singles 'After Dark' and 'The Morning After' were championed by XFM’s John Kennedy, and also both becoming BBC Radio 1 Singles of the Week for Zane Lowe. The band toured extensively with British Sea Power, Jet, Drugstore and The Futureheads in support of the new album, People Are Cruel. The album was an Album of the Month for HMV and the band sold out their subsequent London shows. After a 12-year hiatus, Mower are back with a new single, sounding louder and meaner than ever.



"The new millennium Kinks on speed!!!" - Mark Radcliffe, BBC RADIO 1



"MOWER fly admirably in the face of convention." - KERRANG!



"Pop music that douses itself in gasoline and plays with matches, always on the verge of some kinetically-satisfying explosion or self-destruction." - NME



“How Blur might have sounded had Coxon managed to wrest Damon Albarn’s hand from the creative tiller. Raucous and rowdy, this attitudinal album throbs with primal intensity….a sharp, self mocking wit worthy of Ray Davies.” - Q Seabright Arms - Mower (UK) Single Launch
